DEVICES AND METHODS OF USE

CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

[0001] This application claims the priority of U.S. Prov. App. No. 61/799,755, filed March 15, 2013, the disclosure of which is incorporated by reference herein.

[0002] This application is related to and incorporates by reference herein the disclosure of U.S. Pub. No. US 2014/0012277, published January 9, 2014. INCORPORATION BY REFERENCE

[0003] All publications and patent applications mentioned in this specification are herein incorporated by reference to the same extent as if each individual publication or patent application was specifically and individually indicated to be incorporated by reference. BACKGROUND

[0004] Procedures for loading and/or splaying haptics of an intraocular lens ("IOL") that use many individual tools or components, and involve manually displacing an IOL from an IOL carrier or other storage device into a delivery device or delivery lumen can be cumbersome and can risk damaging the IOL and delivery performance. An assembly that allows the user to quickly, reliably, and safely introduce an IOL into a delivery device or delivery lumen without manual manipulation or at least without risk of IOL damage would provide advantages over existing approaches.

SUMMARY OF THE DISCLOSURE

[0005] One aspect of the disclosure is a method of reconfiguring an intraocular lens haptic for delivery, comprising providing an intraocular lens in an intraocular lens receiving region of a base member such that a leading haptic is in a substantially at-rest configuration relative to an optic portion of the intraocular lens; moving a free end of the leading haptic away from the optic portion and towards a delivery lumen with an actuatable splaying member.

[0006] In some embodiments the substantially at-rest configuration is a curved configuration. The curved configuration can closely follow the curvature of an intraocular lens optic portion periphery.

[0007] In some embodiments the providing step comprises a trailing haptic in a substantially at-rest configuration relative to the optic portion of the intraocular lens.

[0008] In some embodiments the providing step comprises at least a portion of the leading haptic being positioned distally relative to a distal most portion of the optic portion. [0009] In some embodiments moving the free end comprises moving the free end towards the delivery lumen without substantially moving a free end of a trailing haptic away from the optic portion.

[0010] In some embodiments moving the free end comprises moving the free end with an axially directed force from the splaying member.

[0011] In some embodiments moving the free end comprises engaging the free end with the actuatable splaying member.

[0012] In some embodiments moving the free end comprises distally moving the splaying member relative to the base member.

[0013] In some embodiments moving the free end comprises moving the free end from a position directly adjacent the optic periphery to a position further away from the optic periphery.

[0014] In some embodiments the providing step comprises the free end being closer to a first side of a base member channel than a second side of a base member channel, and the free end being accessible for direct engagement in the proximal direction.

[0015] In some embodiments moving the free end creates a bend in the leading haptic wherein a free end portion of the leading haptic extends away from an attached end portion of the leading haptic. Moving the free end can create a bend at a location in the leading haptic that is predisposed to bending when the free end is actuated with the splaying member.

[0016] In some embodiments the method further comprises moving a free end of a trailing haptic away from the optic portion. Moving the free end of the trailing haptic can comprise moving the free end of the trailing haptic in a proximal direction away from the leading haptic free end.

Moving the free end of the trailing haptic can be moved upon a second actuation member.

[0017] In some embodiments the method further comprises loading the intraocular lens into the delivery lumen. The delivery lumen can be part of a separate delivery device. The delivery lumen can be integral with the base member. The delivery lumen can be part of the base member.

[0018] One aspect of the disclosure is a method of splaying leading and trailing haptics of an intraocular lens in preparation for delivery into an eye, comprising splaying a leading haptic relative to an optic portion of an intraocular lens with an actuatable splaying member; and splaying a trailing haptic relative to the optic portion, wherein splaying the leading haptic is initiated prior to initiating the splaying of the second haptic.

[0019] In some embodiments splaying the leading haptic is completed prior to initiating the splaying of the second haptic.

[0020] In some embodiments the method further comprises loading the intraocular lens into a delivery lumen. [0021] In some embodiments splaying the trailing haptic occurs as a result of advancing the optic portion distally with an actuatable loading member, and wherein the actuatable loading member does not directly the free end of the trailing haptic.

[0022] One aspect of the disclosure is a method of splaying leading and trailing haptics of an intraocular lens in preparation for delivery into an eye, comprising actively splaying a leading haptic and passively splaying a trailing haptic. Actively splaying can comprise splaying the leading haptic free end by engaging and moving the leading haptic free end with an actuatable splaying member, and wherein passively splaying the trailing haptic occurs as a result of forces on the trailing haptic free end from a non-actuatable component. Actively splaying can comprise splaying the leading haptic free end by engaging and moving the leading haptic free end with an actuatable member, and wherein passively splaying the trailing haptic occurs as a result of a second actuatable member applying forces to a portion of the intraocular lens other than the free end of the trailing haptic.

[0023] One aspect of the disclosure is a method of positioning an intraocular lens in a base carrier, comprising: positioning an intraocular lens in an intraocular lens receiving area in a base member such that a leading haptic free end is closer to one side of a base member channel and is accessible for direct actuation in the proximal direction. The haptic free end can be facing proximally.

[0024] One aspect of the disclosure is a device for reconfiguring an intraocular lens in preparation for delivering the intraocular lens into an eye, comprising a base member comprising an intraocular lens receiving portion; a splaying member adapted to interact with the base member to engage and splay a leading haptic of an intraocular lens positioned in the lens receiving area; and a loading member adapted to interact with the base member to engage the intraocular lens after the leading haptic has been splayed and to advance the intraocular lens towards a delivery lumen.

[0025] In some embodiments the splaying member is configured to be axially movable relative to base member.

[0026] In some embodiments the splaying member interacts with the base member such that a distal end is not aligned with the center of the intraocular lens receiving area.

[0027] In some embodiments the splaying member interacts with the base member such that a distal end of the splaying member is disposed on a side of the lens receiving area.

[0028] In some embodiments the splaying member has branched distal end.

[0029] In some embodiments the base member has an element configured to mate with the branched distal end to prevent further distal movement.

[0030] In some embodiments the splaying member engages a first side wall of a base member channel and is slidable thereon. [0031] In some embodiments the loading member is adapted to be axially movable relative to the base member.

[0032] In some embodiments the splaying member and the loading member are radially offset from one another in the base member. The base member can comprise a dividing element that maintains the relative positions of the splaying member and the loading member.

[0033] In some embodiments the loading member comprises a first extension extending distally from a top of a loading member body, and a second extension extending distally from the loading member body below the first extension, the first extension having a length greater than a length of the second extension.

[0034] In some embodiments the first extension extends distally and upwardly from the loading member body.

[0035] In some embodiments the first extension is adapted to flex where it extends upwardly from the loading member body. The loading member can interact with the base member such that as the loading member is advanced distally the first extension is disposed over a central region of the lens receiving area. The device can further comprise a lid adapted to be secured to the base member over the intraocular lens receiving area, the lid comprising an guide element adapted to engage with and cause the lowering of the first extension as the loading member is advanced distally.

[0036] In some embodiments the base member comprises a loading member lock out that prevents the loading member from being distally advanced until the lock out is moved, and wherein the splaying member comprises a release to move the lock out.

[0037] In some embodiments the base member comprises a trailing haptic receiving portion extending generally radially relative to the base member channel.

[0038] In some embodiments the device further comprises a lid comprising a plurality of posts configured to be disposed in a plurality of corresponding post guides in the base member. The lid can comprise a plurality of compression spokes extending downward from a bottom surface of the lid, the spokes adapted to engage with a leading haptic and a trailing haptic of the intraocular lens to lightly compress the haptics. In some embodiments at least two spokes engage each of the haptics.

[0061] Some aspects of this disclosure describe storage devices for an intraocular lens. Some aspects of the disclosure describe devices and assemblies for loading an intraocular lens into a delivery device or delivery lumen. In some embodiments the devices and assemblies can be used for both storage and loading.

[0062] Figures 1-13 illustrate an exemplary embodiment of an IOL loading device, including a sequence of loading an exemplary intraocular lens into a delivery device. While figures 1 -13 are descried in the context of intraocular lens loading, the devices and assemblies in figures 1-13 could also be used to store the intraocular lens. "Storage" as used herein includes any time the intraocular lens is kept in the device, and includes any sterilization procedures, shipping, and/or storage.

[0063] The loading devices herein are adapted to splay at least one haptic of the intraocular lens. The embodiment shown in figures 1-13 illustrates a device adapted to splay two haptics of an intraocular lens, and is adapted to splay the two haptics sequentially. The term "splay" (or derivatives of "splay") as used herein refers to the act of re-orienting at least a portion of a haptic relative to an optic portion of an intraocular lens, such as from a substantial at-rest orientation in which the haptic has a generally curvilinear configuration to an orientation in which the haptic extends away from the optic. In the splayed orientation, at least a portion of the haptic does not follow the periphery of the optic portion, and extends away from the optic portion. In the splayed orientation a free end of the haptic is disposed further from the periphery of the optic than when the haptic is at an at-rest orientation relative to the optic. In the splayed orientation, at least a portion of the haptic has a more linear configuration than when the haptic is in the at-rest configuration.

[0064] The device(s) in figures 1-13 are adapted to be used to load an IOL, such as the exemplary accommodating intraocular lens shown, into a delivery device or delivery lumen, from which the IOL is delivered into a patient's eye (such as into a capsular bag after the native capsule has been removed). A "delivery device" or "delivery lumen" as used herein may be referred to as a cartridge, and generally refers to a device or lumen that houses at least a portion of the intraocular lens for any period of time before the intraocular lens is implanted into the eye.

[0065] As an example, the loading devices and methods herein can be used to load an IOL into the cartridges described in U.S. App. No. 13/835,876, filed March 15, 2013, the disclosure of which is incorporated by reference herein. They can also be used to load an IOL into any suitable type of delivery device or delivery lumen.

[0066] The IOLs that can be loaded and splayed using devices and methods herein can be any type of IOL, such as accommodating, monofocal, and multifocal IOLs. Figures 1 -13 illustrate the exemplary splaying of first and second haptics and the loading of a fluid-filled and fluid-driven accommodating IOL, exemplary details of which are described in U.S. App. No. 13/672,608, filed November 8, 2012, while exemplary methods of delivering the IOL from the delivery device and into the eye are described in U.S. App. No. 13/835,876, filed March 15, 2013.

[0067] Procedures for loading and/or splaying of haptics that use many individual tools or components, and involve manually displacing an IOL from an IOL carrier or other storage device into a delivery device (e.g., cartridge) can be cumbersome and can risk damaging the lens and delivery performance. Preferable options include an assembly that allows the user to quickly, reliably, and safely introduce an IOL into a delivery device (e.g., a cartridge) without manual manipulation or at least without risk of IOL damage.

[0068] Figures 1-13 illustrate an exemplary splaying and loading lens carrier assembly that allows for safe transport of an accommodating IOL from manufacturing, through sterilization, storage, and into the operating environment. It does this with the lens in a substantially unstressed state to not alter power or shape of the lens through sterilization or storage. When ready for lens delivery, the loading IOL carrier can be mounted to a delivery device (e.g., a cartridge), which places the lens in a preferred state ready to deliver. The carriers herein are adapted to mate with cartridge and tray assemblies described in U.S. App. No. 13/835,876, filed March 15, 2013, such that the IOL can be loaded into those cartridges, but the disclosure is not so limited. The carrier assemblies herein can be used to load IOLs into other types of delivery devices.

[0069] As shown in the top view in figure 1, exemplary carrier 10 includes base 12, which acts as a tray to interface with other loading IOL carrier components as well as delivery system components (e.g., a cartridge). Base 12 also includes an IOL receiving region formed therein, and also acts as a guide for the IOL through the splay and loading process. The carrier assembly also includes a splay member 20. The splay member is adapted to move distally and proximally within a channel or guide in base 12 and functions to splay leading haptic 4 in a direction distal to optic 2 of IOL 3. The carrier assembly also includes loading member guide 22, which houses a loading member that moves distally to engage with and advance IOL 3 into cartridge 30 (or other delivery device or delivery lumen) and placing it at a predefined position in the cartridge to be ready for further assembly of a delivery device, such as the plungers described in U.S. App. No. 13/835,876, filed March 15, 2013. The carrier assembly also includes a carrier cover, or lid, not shown in figures 1- 13 for clarity. The cover retains the IOL, splay member, and loading member in the assembly. It also allows for viscoelastic lubricant to be introduced into the system without disrupting the lens orientation. It also allows for visualization of the loading procedure.

[0070] Figure 1 illustrates IOL 3 within an IOL receiving region in base 12. Leading haptic 4 is disposed distally to optic 2, and trailing haptic 6 is generally proximal to optic 2. Splay member 20 is disposed within channel 15 in base 12. Splay member 20 has an extension on one side of the member 20 that, when the splay member 20 in advanced in channel 15, is adjacent a side wall of channel 15. In figure 1 the extension is shown on the bottom of splay member 20. The IOL is positioned within the receiving region, and the extension is disposed within base 12, such that the extension is positioned to engage with the free end of leading haptic 4 and initiate the splaying process as splaying member 20 is advanced distally.

[0071] Figure 2 illustrates an exploded view with cartridge 30 separate from carrier base 12, but illustrating the end to which cartridge 30 is adapted to be secured to carrier base 12. Figure 3 shows cartridge 30 secured to base 12.

[0072] Figures 1 -7 illustrate an exemplary method of splaying a leading haptic of the IOL within the carrier base. Prior to use, the loading IOL carrier can be sterilized and shipped with the IOL disposed therein (as shown in Figure 1). Optionally the cartridge can be attached before sterilization, or the cartridge can be attached at the time of loading. Viscoelastic is introduced to the carrier through a port in the side of the loading IOL carrier that has a communicating port adjacent to lens, an example of which is shown in Figure 15. Addition of viscoelastic lubricates the IOL, carrier, and cartridge components to allow for orientation and movement of the lens without sticking.

[0073] Figure 1 illustrates the IOL within the carrier base such that the haptics are in an at-rest configuration and orientation, and are substantially unstressed. In the at-rest orientation, the haptics are both generally curvilinear, and extending around the periphery of optic 2. Trailing haptic 6 is oriented generally towards trailing haptic guide 14, which extends radially outward from channel 15. Both haptics closely follow the curvature of the optic portion, unlike some wire haptics, which extend further away from the optic portion and do not closely follow the curvature of the optic periphery. Figure 3 illustrates the carrier mounted to cartridge 30. When the carrier is mounted to the cartridge, as shown in Figure 3, the carrier channel 15 is in communication with a delivery lumen within the cartridge that is adapted to receive the IOL.

[0074] As can be seen in Figure 1 , splay member 20 includes an elongate distal portion extending from the proximal portion and is aligned with one side of the channel so that the distal end is positioned (and adapted) to engage and push the leading haptic distally when the splay slide is advanced. The IOL is oriented rotationally in Figure 1 such that the elongate portion is adapted to push on the free end of the haptic (i.e., not the end of the haptic that is directly attached to optic 2). The free end is facing proximally and is accessible in the proximal direction.

[0075] Figures 4-7 are top views of base 12 illustrating an exemplary sequence of splaying a leading haptic of an IOL. An operator actuates splay member 20 to advance it distally, causing splay member 20 to engage with the free end of leading haptic 4, as shown in figure 5. As splay member 20 continues to be advanced distally, the extending portion of splay member 20 pushes the free end of leading haptic 4 away from the periphery of optic 2, changing the configuration of the haptic and the haptic' s orientation relative to optic 2. Surgeon features in the haptic that allow for fluid (e.g., viscoelastic fluid) to be advanced or aspirated during the procedure act as a natural hinge, and leading haptic 4 will naturally bend at that location. The surgeon feature is described in more detail in the applications reference herein, but in general the surgeon feature is a region of decreased thickness relative to adjacent portions of the haptic that creates an opening between the optic and the haptic radially inner surface. As splay member 20 continues to be distally advanced, the distal end of leading haptic 4 continues to splay, as shown in figure 6, starting to extend generally in the distal direction. Continued splay member 20 advanced continues until finger 24 engages pocket 13 in the base, and further distal movement of splay member 20 is prevented.

Leading haptic 4 is splayed in figure 7, with the free end of the haptic extending in the distal direction, and the haptic reconfigured to a splayed configuration. The trailing haptic can undergo a relatively minimal amount of deformation as the leading haptic is splayed, but is not considered to be splayed as that term is used herein. In Figure 7 the trailing haptic is not yet splayed. In this embodiment the leading haptic is "actively" splayed into that an actuatable member makes direct contact with the free end of the haptic.

[0076] After the leading haptic is splayed, the IOL is then loaded into the cartridge, during which the trailing haptic is also splayed. In this embodiment the trailing haptic is passively splayed in that it is splayed as a result of a force being applied to a non-free end of the trailing haptic. The carrier base need not be moved relative to the cartridge at this point. Splay member 20 is not advanced any further to load the IOL into the cartridge, in this embodiment due to the stop 1 1 in the base.

[0077] Figures 8-13 illustrate an exemplary loading process that loads the IOL into the cartridge after the leading haptic has been splayed. During the loading the trailing haptic is passively splayed. A loading member 40, which is optionally mechanically coupled to the splay member, is advanced distally within a channel or guide in the splay member, as shown in Figure 8. Loading member 40 has an elongate distal portion sized and configured for advancement within and relative to the splay member channel. The distal end of loading member 40 is adapted to push the IOL into the cartridge (i.e., load the IOL into the cartridge). To load the IOL, the operator distally advances loading member 40, moving the IOL forward within carrier, as shown in figures 9 and 10. During the loading process trailing haptic 6 is deformed against the channel wall as the IOL is advanced further down the carrier channel. In Figure 10 trailing haptic 6 is significantly splayed proximally relative optic, and bends at the surgeon feature as described above in the context of the leading haptic. The free end portions of the haptics extend away from the optic portion, while the attachment portions of the haptics do not extend away from the optic portion as much. In these embodiments the free end portions are considered the portions distal to the bend locations of the haptics. As the IOL is about to be loaded into the cartridge, the leading haptic is distally splayed and the trailing haptic is proximally splayed. With the IOL shown, free end portions of each haptic are reconfigured.

Loading member 40 continues to be advanced until the IOL is advanced into the cartridge delivery lumen, as shown in Figure 13. As the IOL is loaded, the optic undergoes deformation due to a tapered surface of the cartridge. The haptics undergo additional reorientation relative to the optic as the IOL is advanced into the cartridge. Loading member 40 is sized so that the IOL is advanced to a predetermined position within the cartridge, to ensure it is advanced far enough but not out of the cartridge. A very small portion of the IOL could extend from the distal port of the cartridge. The operator then retracts the loading member within the carrier. The operator then removes the carrier from the cartridge to allow the positioning of other delivery devices, such as the delivery devices described in U.S. App. No. 13/835,876, filed March 15, 2013. Optionally, an additional delivery member could be advanced through the carrier to deliver the IOL out of the cartridge.

[0078] Figure 14 illustrates an additional embodiment of a carrier in which loading member 40 is disposed to the side of splay member 20 rather than axially moveable within it. Cartridge 30 is shown secured to the distal portion of the carrier base.

[0079] Embodiments below show a protective cartridge bay, or cartridge receiving area, included in the loading carrier base to allow the cartridge to be in the shipped assembly. The viscoelastic port (see figure 15) can be designed to mate to standard syringes and has a pathway that leads to proximity of the lens. The splay member and loading member can also be coupled to allow the operator to continue one motion to allow for splaying and loading of the IOL in one generally continuous act.

[0080] One or more components of the carrier can be, for example, machined white acetal copolymer, but can be any other suitable material. In alternative embodiments, a handheld loading tool can be used in place of the integrated loading slide, and is an example of using additional components with the carrier base and splay slide.

[0081] Figures 16-32C illustrate exemplary embodiments of intraocular lens carriers that are adapted to store intraocular lenses, as well as to load intraocular lenses into a delivery device or delivery lumen. This disclosure generally refers to a delivery device (e.g., a cartridge) as a device that is different than the carrier, but the delivery device and carrier can be considered the same device in alternative embodiments. In those embodiments the intraocular lens can be loaded into a delivery lumen of the carrier. The carriers can be used to load an intraocular lens in either way. In the embodiment in figures 16-32C they are separate components adapted to mate with one another. The carriers in figures 16-32C are adapted to carry the exemplary accommodating intraocular lens in a stable, lightly axially-compressed condition (referred to herein as a "compressed condition"). The intraocular lens can be carried in the compressed condition through, for example, sterilization, shipping, and storage. The carriers in figures 16-32C are also adapted for touch-free loading of intraocular lenses into a delivery device for delivery in an eye.

[0082] Figure 16 is a top view of an exemplary intraocular lens carrier. Carrier 300 includes base 310, splay member 320, load member 330, and lid 350. Lid 350 is shown as transparent to allow intraocular lens 340 to be seen between lid 350 and base 310. Figure 17 shows an exploded view with base 310, load member 330, splay member 320, lens 340, and lid 350. Base 310 has a channel or guide 311 (see figure 17) in the proximal portion adapted to receive the proximal portions of load member 330 and splay member 320 therein. As shown in figure 16, splay member 320 and load member 330 include elongate portions that are positioned generally next to one another and extending in the proximal to distal direction (axially), while base 310 includes divider 312 that separates splay member 320 from load member 330. Splay member 320, load member 330, and channel 31 1 are all configured to allow splay member 320 and load member 330 to be moved distally within channel as part of the splay and loading process below. Base 310 also includes load member lock out 313 that prevents load member 330 from being advanced distally until release 323 of the splay member (see figure 17) engages and displaces lock out 313 radially, thus allowing load member 330 to then be advanced distally. This prevents distal movement of load member 330 until splay member 320 has been advanced far enough distally to ensure that the leading haptic is sufficiently splayed. Splay member 320 and load member 330 are somewhat similar in function to the other splaying members and pushing members set forth above in figures 1-13. Base 310 also includes an intraocular lens receiving region 314 (see figure 17) that includes trailing haptic receiving area 315.

[0083] Splay member 320 in this embodiment has a distal portion 321 with a general forked, or branched, configuration. As shown in figure 17, distal portion 321 includes first extension 322 and second extension 324 of the branched configuration, with both extensions including first and second flat surfaces. The angle between the two branches of the branched configuration can be between about 60 degrees and about 120 degrees. If the angle is too large distal portion 321 may not index to the landing position after splaying. If the angle is too small distal end 321 may not be able to pick up the leading haptic at the beginning of the splay process. In the embodiment shown the angle is 90 degrees. In some embodiments the angle is between about 75 degrees and about 105 degrees. The branched configuration of distal portion 321 is configured to mate with splay member stop 316 (see figure 16) in base 310. Second extension 324 includes two flat surfaces, the flat surfaces defining an internal angle less than 90 degrees (such as 75 degrees or less, 60 degrees or less, or 50 degrees or less, such as about 45 degrees). The tip of second extension 324 is configured to, when splay member 320 is advanced distally, fit just between the free end of the leading haptic and the optic portion of lens 340. The positioning of extension 324 in this manner causes the leading haptic to start to splay when splay member is advanced, which is described in more detail below.

[0084] Figure 18 shows a perspective view of carrier 300 and cartridge 360 before the cartridge is secured to the distal cartridge receiving area of carrier 300. Figure 19 shows the assembly after cartridge 360 is secured to the distal portion of carrier 300. In use, as will be described below, the intraocular lens is loaded from its receiving region in carrier 300 into a delivery lumen in cartridge 360.

[0085] Figure 20 illustrates distal end 331 of load member 330. Load member 330 includes an elongate body 333, a first extension 332 extending distally and in an upward direction relative to a top portion of elongate body 333 at a hinge 335. First extension 332 is adapted to rotate with respect to the portion of load body 333 proximal to extension 332 at hinge 335. Load body 333 also includes second extension 334 extending distally and in a generally linear orientation with respect to the proximal portions of load body 333.

[0086] Figure 21 shows a view of bottom surface 352 of lid 350. Lid 350 is positioned on top of a portion of base 310, as shown in the exploded view in figure 24. Lid 350 covers the portion of base 310 where the lens 340 is positioned. Lid 350 includes a plurality of posts 353, which are adapted to fit within post guides 3 17 in base 310 (see figure 17) to help stabilize lid 350 with respect to base 310. In this embodiment there are three posts, although more or less can be used. It may be beneficial to use three posts, which develop a simple plane, whereas more posts may increase the risk of over constraint which could lead to increased variation in lens compression. Lid 350 also includes sight or probe apertures 354, which are described below. Lid 350 also includes a plurality of compression spokes 355 that extend downward (i.e., in the same direction as posts 353) from the bottom surface 352 of the lid. In this embodiment there are four compression spokes 355, and they have linear configurations extending radially away from the center of the lens receiving region.

[0087] Base 310 and lid 350 are adapted and configured to provide advantages when storing intraocular lens 340 for periods of time. Some types of accommodating intraocular lenses may be susceptible to undergoing power changes during storage due to, for example, degradation of IOL materials or forces on the lens from the packaging components. Eliminating or greatly reducing power changes during storage, or at least making them predictable, is highly desirable. For example, lens 340 can be a fluid-driven accommodating intraocular lens such as those incorporated by reference herein. For example, the two haptics may include fluid chambers in fluid

communication with the option portion. If the haptics are compressed too greatly over time, fluid may transfer between the haptics and optics, causing power changes to the IOL. The compression spokes 355 of lid 350 provides a sufficient amount of compression to haptics to stabilize them without distorting them. The spokes also isolate interaction between the haptics and the carrier to the spokes, which prevents haptic compression coming from a larger surface such as the lid bottom surface. That is, the haptics are maintained in desired configurations so that the IOL power change is predictable during storage. The manner of controlling the degree of haptic compression in this embodiment uses an assembly method with finely controlled post height coupled with an equally controlled height of the lens compression feature, in this embodiment the spokes. The bottoming of the posts in the mating part of carrier base 310 controls a well-defined compression between a base surface on which the lens rests and the lens compression spoke. This compression holds the lens in a stabilized position through storage, which can include sterilization and shipping.

[0088] In this embodiment the posts are designed to sit on the plane of the base on which the haptics are disposed (in their respective pockets). This plane thus acts as a reference plane, or zero height. In some embodiments the haptics have a height of about 2.88mm. Some haptics may have a designed height slightly greater than their actual height in the configuration in the base. In some embodiments the distance between the bottom of the spokes and the base surface on which the lens rests is between about 2.750mm and about 2.850mm. In some embodiments this distance is just less than the haptic height. In some embodiments the spoke height is about 0.200mm. This distance isolates the interaction between the haptic and the carrier to the spokes alone and prevents compression coming from a larger surface.

[0089] The compression to the haptics is limited to locations on the haptic that result both in low deformation of the haptic and high holding stability. Figure 22 illustrates the relative position of spokes 355 and haptics 341 and 342. IOL 340 includes an optic portion coupled to two haptics. Each of the haptics includes a buttress portion secured to the optic, as is described in the applications incorporated by reference. Two of the spokes each engage distal portions of the haptics. The other two spokes engage buttress portions of the haptics. Two of the spokes are disposed along the same imaginary line, while the other two spokes are disposed along the same imaginary line. The spokes are arranged so that they engage the same regions of each of the two haptics. The light compression stabilizes the power and quality of the lens through radiation or other sterilization processes as well as temperature changes or vibration effects of shipping. The light compression also holds the lens in position through the initiation of the splaying and loading sequences described herein.

[0090] The carrier is also adapted for lens compression verification. In this embodiment lid 350 includes probe or sight holes 354 (three are shown) that allow for the measurement of the compression level after the lens is in place within the base and the lid has been assembled onto the base. In some embodiments this can be performed by measuring the spoke to lens base gap through the lid and sight hole with a non-contact laser measurement system. [0091] The carrier can also be adapted to enable verifying the intraocular lens quality or power during or after storage. This may be desirable in general, or in particular because some intraocular lenses have the potential to take on a very small permanent set through sterilization or due to aging, and thus there may be a need to verify quality and power change of the intraocular lens in the stored configuration.

[0092] One method of assessing the circularity of a reflected concentric ring pattern may be used to look at lens quality before or after compression of the lens. If this is to be done after the compression of the lens (e.g., after storage), the lid can be adapted with a window that would allow for this. In fact, the lid can include a plurality of windows (and/or the base could include one or more windows) and may be needed to allow for optical verification of the power and quality of the lens after being compressed.

[0093] Figures 23-3 I D illustrate examples of the lid and/or the base including one or more visualization windows formed therein. In embodiments in which at least one of the base and lid include one or more windows, one or more plugs should generally be included to complete the viscoelastic path for preparing to load the intraocular lens as well as for sealing the lens path for loading. Plugs can be shipped attached to the finished assembly, but in some embodiments the plugs are installed in the operating room just prior to loading to reduce the risk of disturbing the known compression.

[0094] Figure 23A and 23B show top and bottom views, respectively, of exemplary carrier 400 that includes base 410 with a window and corresponding base plug 454, and lid 450 with a window and corresponding lid plug 452. Other components in the embodiments in figures 16-22 are intended to be included in these embodiments even if not specifically mentioned herein. The plugs can be removed, respectively, to visualize the top or bottom of the IOL that is disposed inside the carrier.

The windows are positioned within the lid and base in order to visualize the optic portion of the intraocular lens, as is shown in figure 24 with lid plug 452 removed. Lid 450 is shown as transparent to enable visualization of leading haptic 441 , trailing haptic 442, and other components of the carrier. Optic portion 443 is viewed through window 456.

[0095] Figures 25A and 25B are perspective exploded top and bottom views, respectively, or lid 450, window 456 formed therein, and plug 452. Plug 452 includes a slot portion that is aligned with the slot in the bottom surface of the lid, as is described herein. Figures 26A and 26B show assembly views of figures 32A and 32B.

[0096] Figures 27A-30 illustrate an exemplary embodiment of base 410 that includes a window on the bottom to allow visualization of the intraocular lens optic. Base 410 and base plug 480 are configured to mate and to be secured together so that window 412 can be plugged with plug 480. Figure 27A shows a top perspective exploded view of base 410 and plug 480. Figure 27B shows a close-up bottom perspective exploded view of base 410, including window 412, and plug 480. Figure 28 is a perspective view of plug 480 showing fluid communication between fluid port 481 of plug 480, internal fluid channel 483, and outlet fluid port 482. The shape of the plug is shaped to mate with the base. Plug 480 is, in this embodiment, secured to base 410 with seven deformable locks 414, which are part of base 410. Only three of the locks 414 are labeled in figure 27B. Figure 30 show a bottom view with plug in place to plug up the window, showing the locks 414 that hold plug in place. The plug can be removed by pulling on the fluid port 481 outer surface, in a downward direction. Figure 29 shows the plug 480 and base 410 assembled, with outlet fluid port 482 in fluid communication with the inside of base 410. Plug 480 includes an element 484 (see figure 28) adapted to fit within window 412. In this embodiment they are circular, but could be a different shape. In this embodiment the base plug includes a fluid port, which will be described below in the context of the methods of use.

[0097] Figures 31 A-3 IB show top and bottom assembled views of the lids, bases, and plugs in the embodiments in figures 25A-30. Figure 31 A is a top view, while figure 31C is a top close-up view of plug 452. Figure 3 IB is a bottom view, while figure 3 ID is a close-up of that view.

[0098] The disclosure also includes exemplary methods of loading an exemplary intraocular lens from any of the carriers herein into an exemplary cartridge, wherein the intraocular lens can be subsequently be delivered from the cartridge into an eye. The methods will be described generally without reference to specific parts of the devices herein, although examples will be given in the context of certain embodiments. Not all steps need necessarily be performed, and the order may vary. Before the IOL is loaded into the cartridge, however, the IOL may be stored in the carrier for any length of time. To prepare the IOL for storage, the intraocular lens is positioned in the IOL receiving region in the carrier base, such as IOL receiving region 314 shown in figure 17. The lid is then placed on top of the base, while positioning the posts in the post guides.

[0099] When the IOL is ready to be loaded in the cartridge (or other delivery device or delivery lumen), a cartridge can be secured to the carrier base, such as is shown in figures 18 and 19. In figures 18 and 19 carrier 300 includes mounting tabs 372 and 374 that are asymmetric. Tab 372 is longer than tab 374, both of which are adapted to engage with asymmetric apertures 382 and 384 in cartridge 360. This can help position the cartridge right side up, so that the bevel at the distal end of the cartridge is facing down when the IOL is delivered from the cartridge. The asymmetric tabs also protect the user from mounting the cartridge upside down, which would result in an inverted lens delivery.

[0100] After the cartridge is secured to the carrier base, a viscoelastic substance is then introduced through a side luer port of the carrier base to fill the lens chamber in the carrier base, which lubricates the lens and the loading path. An exemplary side port is port 319 shown in figure 16. Alternatively, tab 480 shown in figure 27A-30 can be the side port. A mark 399 (see figure 21) defined on the lid or base shows the correct volume of viscoelastic for use. Mark 399 as shown in figure 21 and 22 is about a 30 degree arc.

[0101] As can be seen in figure 17, side port 319 is in fluid communication with an exit fluid port on the bottom of the base in the IOL receiving region, similar in configuration to port 482 in plug 480. The port conveys viscoelatic from a syringe or other viscoelastic delivery aid to the area around the IOL prior to the splaying and loading steps. The location of the fluid exit port that is nearest the lens should be positioned so that flow of the viscoelastic does not dislocate the IOL from its position prior to splaying and loading. In the embodiment in figure 17, the location of the exit port is at the center of the optic portion receiving area, however is could be moved to other locations, such as closer to the leading haptic. The size of this port can control the user's ability to create flow. In some embodiments the orifice diameter is about O.OlOin.

[0102] It is of note that the IOL is maintained in a position in which the leading haptic buttress shoulder, where the haptic is coupled to the optic portion, is in close proximity to the buttress traction pad on the base, such as buttress traction pad 318 shown in figure 16. This is generally important for stability of the IOL's position as the leading haptic is splayed.

[0103] The method of loading also includes splaying the leading haptic. Figures 32A -32C illustrate a sequence of loading the IOL from figure 16 (only a portion of the carrier is shown for clarity). In figure 32A the IOL is positioned in the carrier base just as is shown in figure 16. The free end of the leading haptic is proximally facing and is accessible in the proximal direction for direct contact and actuation. To initiate the leading haptic splaying, splaying member 320 is advanced distally within the carrier. Extension 324 on splaying member 320 is configured to fit between leading haptic 341 and optic portion 343 as splaying member 320 continues to be advanced distally. As splaying member 320 continues to be advanced distally, splaying member 320 engages leading haptic 341, bending leading haptic 341 away from optic portion 343 and towards the cartridge.

Region 345 of leading haptic 341 is a thinner region of haptic 341 and is described in more detailed in the applications incorporated by reference herein. Region 345 acts similar to a living hinge, so that as splaying member 320 is advanced, haptic 341 will reliably bend at the hinge (see figure 32B). Splay member 320 is advanced until the distal end 321 engages splay member stop 316, as shown in figure 32B. In figure 32B leading haptic 341 has been splayed distally, and has been reoriented from the at-rest orientation (relative to the optic) in figure 32A to an orientation that extends away from the optic, and generally faces distally towards the cartridge delivery lumen.

[0104] As splaying member 320 is advanced and as it engages stop 316, release 323 will push lockout 313 radially, allowing push member 330 to be advanced distally to load the IOL. [0105] Push member 330 is then advanced distally within the carrier base as shown in figure 32C. Extension 332, which in an at-rest state extends slightly upward from body 333 (see figure 20) rides in slot 356 in lid 350 (see figure 17). Extension 332 is pressed over the top of the optic portion 343 by a descending ramp in the lid slot 356, as can be seen in figure 17. Positioning extension 332 over the optic potion adds axial stability to the optic for the force applied to the trailing buttress by the second extension 334 of the push member (see figure 20). Second extension 334 introduces a force to the trailing buttress, as can be seen in figure 32C, while stabilizing it so it does not shift under second extension 334 as it moves forward. Any trailing haptic material that slides under the second extension 334 into space 337 (see figure 20) during movement has ample clearance under second extension 334 and is protected from being pinched. Positioning the first extension 332 over the optic helps create the fold of the optic along the line of the first extension 332 as the IOL enters the tapering distal section of the carrier, as shown in figure 32C. Pusher member 330 continues to be advanced until the trailing haptic is splayed as well extending proximally away from the optic portion. Pusher member 330 continues to be advanced until the IOL enters into the cartridge, in the same general configuration as shown in Figure 13. Method steps described above with respect to figures 1 -13 can also occur during the splaying and loading methods described with respect to figures 32A-32C.
